Loving To Death: Once-secret grove of gigantic redwoods ‘starting to look like freeway system’

The result: The trees’ root systems were laid bare by user-created trails that damage the way redwoods take in oxygen and nutrients, biologists said. Parks officials say the damage is akin to carving seven basketball courts in the middle of the forest.“The grove has gotten hammered,” Silver said. “The sheer number of people tromping off trail has completely flattened the vegetation in some areas.”It wasn’t always that way.

Loved to death. Reminds me of the folks who want to swim with Dolphins, who “rescue” animals that don’t need rescuing, etc.  There is no solution to this.

Thanks!
